Step Up to the Plate2012

  • 4.1
French chef Michel Bras, one of the most influential chefs in the world, has decided to hand over his renowned 3-Michelin-Star restaurant to his son Sébastien. Having worked with his father for 15 years, Sébastien is ready. But it's not easy to take over the family business when your father is a master in his field. Filmed in the gorgeous Aubrac region in the South of France, home to the Bras family for generations, STEP UP TO THE PLATE offers a rare glimpse into the Bras' culinary process while capturing one of the most closely watched transitions in the world of haute cuisine.

I saw this film at last year's San Francisco Film Festival and I recommend it highly. It has what might be the best exposition of how a master chef creates a dish I've seen on film. (See "El Bulli: Cooking in Progress", also on Fandor, for a very different method of creativity.) The sensitively captured personalities of the Bras family and the stunning scenery of their remote region of France add to the film's appeal.
